4. NY Jets have major holes at both linebacker and safety

Let's expand a little on the Jets' poor defensive performance. While the entire unit deserves blame, the team's holes at both linebacker and safety remain painfully evident.

It's hard to fault the Jets much for their lack of talent at the safety position. They've lost both of their starting safeties to injury leaving the likes of Ashtyn Davis, Jarrod Wilson, and Sharrod Neasman to pick up the slack.

The results haven't been pretty.

While Wilson did pick up an important second-quarter sack and Sharrod Neasman recorded just the second Jets interception of the season, it's clear that the Jets have nothing at the position.

Meanwhile, Jarrad Davis has been a massive liability since returning from injury, C.J. Mosley has struggled mightily in recent weeks, and Del'Shawn Phillips probably shouldn't be on an NFL roster.

There aren't easy fixes for these positions either The Jets will have to go back to the drawing board in the offseason as they look to hopefully fix their defense.

But as for now, those positions will likely remain gaping holes.
